DC’s Bob Harras on The New 52

This has been such a monumental week for DC Comics. What we launched with (the already sold out!) JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 was absolutely amazing. And what’s more exciting still is that it was just a first taste of what’s to come. Next week marks the release of a slew of incredible series. With ACTION COMICS , writer Grant Morrison and artist Rags Morales’ new interpretation of Superman will seriously blow people away. It really sets the tone for a contemporary Man of Tomorrow. And the dynamic is totally different. But that’s not all. Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman’s ANIMAL MAN is a remarkable book that I could not be more excited about. Gail Simone will be reintroducing Barbara Gordon in the role of BATGIRL with her signature dark, twisted, and brilliant storytelling, accompanied by Ardian Syaf’s breathtaking artwork. Judd Winick and Oliver Nome’s debut collaboration, BATWING , will astound you. Tony Daniel’s art and story in DETECTIVE COMICS will really surprise people. GREEN ARROW is a fascinating new take on Oliver Queen and his mission to change the world one arrow at a time. Rob Liefeld could not be more excited to be returning to HAWK AND DOVE – and his enthusiasm really shows in the final product. In JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL , Dan Jurgens and Aaron Lopresti have created a team of super heroes led by Booster Gold whose adventures will be spanning the globe. MEN OF WAR is a truly different and fresh take on a war book, especially considering the context of it being set against the backdrop of the DC Universe. O.M.A.C. is a non-stop action-packed series that I can best describe as big and loud fun. In STATIC SHOCK , Static comes to Manhattan and his life changes forever in unforeseeable ways. Paul Cornell’s STORMWATCH is stuffed with surprises and new characters that will take the series into very exciting (and completely unexpected!) places. Not to mention, Miguel Sepulveda’s artwork is beyond stunning. And in SWAMP THING , the Plant Elemental will finally return to its own series. Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette have created an extraordinary series and have really made Swamp Thing their own. You won’t want to miss it. And that’s just week one.

This Just Happened: ACTION COMICS #900
